    Am I in trouble, 5 dwarf gouramis in a 55 ?

    an update... 1) I still have five Gouramis. 2) The most aggressive one (Don Carleone) developed a white spot on the mouth. I thought it was columonarris ... but after monitoring it for a bit I do not think that is it. I contemplated if I should separate it into QT -- but have not...

    Am I in trouble, 5 dwarf gouramis in a 55 ?

    Am I in trouble, 5 dwarf gouramis in a 55 ?

    Yeah ... It is a small LFS -- that seemed to be the best out of the bunch in my area*Long Island, NY)... No dead fish in aquariums ... reasonable selection (Not too much) and local breeders bring things to them. So I thought I can trust that place. It is the only reason I went ahead with the...
